6 Reviews of Horsethief Reservoir Campground
Very nice campground

We had tons of fun out here. The lots are decently spaced out and everything was kept clean. Very nice host.

Very clean

Enjoyed satiating here with my family. Only problem was there were dog off leash running around and our dogs don’t good good around dogs they don’t know

Bird watching!

Great bird life can be seen here all year round. There are ample fish in the water, which are also fun to spot. It can fill up pretty quickly, but is decently quiet during the mid-week, if you are able to make it. Saw two bald eagles during my last trip!

Great for family camping trips and fishing

Great place to kayak and fish. Most camp spots are near the water. Camp spots are a bit to close to eachother for my liking, but great for family camping. Area has multipul outhouses. Lots of waterfowl and beautiful flower first come first serve. Campsites fillup fast

First Come, First Served

This is our favorite FCFS campsite. We make sure to get there Thursday evening for a campsite. It will be full by Saturday afternoon. Campsites are rugged, but great to enjoy wildlife. The reservoir is beautiful and great for fishing. We enjoyed taking the boat out and enjoying the quietude of nature.

First to Review
Great Trout Fishing - Summer and Fall Months :-)

This is a dry campground with no hook-ups for RVs. They do have restrooms and potable water around the campgrounds. It's pretty much first-come, first-serve basis. We were able to find 2 spots (group campsite) where we parked our 27' Jayco Travel Trailer and our friends were able to park and pitch 2 tents around us. The surroundings were really nice at the time we went. The reservoir water level was on the low side so the boat ramps for the reservoir were out of the water. We were told that they had drained the lake the year before and it is filling back up again. They have been stocking it with trout and did we experience the benefits of that! We had our kayaks with us and were able to troll around to catch our limit for dinner on both nights :-) It was nice and quiet in the evenings as well. There is a near by boy scout camp down the road on the dam side. It was far enough so that we did not bother them or they did not bother us :-) I would camp here again!
